Global plastic pollution is a widely recognized issue and had been addressed in the scientific program of the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/18. We deployed a new developed Micro plastic sampler during the 2019-2020 Japan Palau Goodwill Yacht Race. The racing yacht TREKKEE and race escort ship MIRAIE were equipped with our latest semi-automatic samplers to collect microplastics across over 3000 km between Japan and The Republic of Palau. See the report here (in Japanese), here (in English) or read this article:
